Please get your people, anyone bar that man, John Delaney to get over to Denmark quick smart and get your hands on this guy's birth cert.

Thomas Delaney plays for FC Copenhagen as a midfielder alongside Jesper Gronkjaer. He is yet to play at senior level with Denmark so there is hope.

He played the full time in a match in Champions League Qualification against FK Mogren. In this his international debut he even scored a goal. His first Superliga match was on 9 August 2009 against SønderjyskE, where he replaced Atiba Hutchinson in second half's stoppage time.

On 3 November 2009, Delaney was named the Danish Under-19 Player of the Year – a prestigious award previously won by players as Jon Dahl Tomasson, Jesper Grønkjær, Peter Løvenkrands and Simon Kjær.
